Training Philosophy

The training philosophy of the internship at Brookside Psychologists is based on a scientist-practitioner model of education and clinical practice. The program integrates a variety of theoretical models, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), mindfulness, relational psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and client-centred psychotherapy.

The program is structured to develop the Intern’s Core Competencies to prepare them to enter their year of supervised practice as a psychologist.

This includes practice management, administration, communication with external resources, and utilization of insurance programs like HCAI. This also includes education and exposure to working with the auto insurance legislation and regulatory bodies in Ontario.
